This was the first night of the new menu for the Princeville Hotel (formerly St Regis). The menu is a Japanese/Hawaiian fusion which sound pretty nice but it wasn’t. The chicken was not cooked thoroughly, and my fish was over cooked. The two steaks where very tasty. Although one was supposed to be medium rare it was more of a medium. The vegetables that you think you are getting are really just a garnish. Overall we really loved the old menu and didn’t love the new one. And it’s quite pricey for what you get.

Food was excellent, view was even better! Went for breakfast and though it was a little pricey, the quality and quantity of fresh selections on the buffet made it worth the drive! View overlooking Hanalei is breathtaking!

One of the best restaurants in Kauai, perhaps even Hawaii. Spectacular setting, phenomenal wine list, and impeccable food.

We had the prix fixed menu, with wine pairings, which every course was well presented and delicious.

Highly recommended, even if you aren’t guests at the hotel.

Beautiful for sunset.

Fabulous food, view and service! We often have had brunch here. This was our first dinner experience. The service is impeccable and they can handle food allergies! All while you enjoy an amazing view. No matter where you are staying on the Island it is worth the trip!! Much quieter than the Beach House with the same excellent food.

We had one off the best meals of our lives there. The Manager Dani sabered a Dom Perignon to highlight our 25th anniversary. The food was incredible and the ambience with an occasional shower (nature's blessing) made the evening divine.

Amazing view can’t be beat. Highlight of the trip. Go about sunset time so can have the best of both. The restaurant was kind enough to send a glass a champagne for our anniversary. Service was ok first of all no one ever introduced themselves as our wait person never heard specials we were seated water was delivered and about 4 min later we were asked to place our order Thought that was odd. Secondly I have a dietary restriction so I asked to omit the starch. Turns out my restriction was in the crust of the fish and the sauce. So instead of getting the option to reselect I was served a plain piece of fish with zero sauce or season and white rice. I was so disappointed. If I’d know I would have simply chose again. I ended up asking to order a side dish which I ate as my entree. It really was an amazing view and I’d do it again just disappointed

The breakfast buffet will fill you for two meals! Loved trying the fresh juices, smoothies and vinegars - what a great concept! There was everything available - several egg options, local items like loco moco and kalua pig benedicts! Fruit, pastries and charcuterie too! Loved it!

Hostess were sweet. Our server Satchel was over sat-we watched him get 5 tables in the span of 10 mins which is too much for any server to still be able to provide quality service that you’d expect at a place this nice. He didn’t read our chit which was our biggest concern as we noted it was our anniversary and we were both also in the hospitality industry. Satchel knew none of these things despite it all being typed up and handed to him-he just didn’t read it. It’s okay though, we only gave him 22%, saved us the extra $40 were we’re going to give him to make it a 35% tip. Also he brought us out the wrong glasses for the wine we brought it-he brought us all purpose whites when we needed flutes for the vintage champagne we brought in to celebrate our anniversary.
Jake the supervisor was awesome, very helpful and talkative.

Worst meal I’ve ever had and a poor representation of St. Regis standards. Crab cake could have been from Long John Silvers, Cesar salad had zero dressing, and where was the cheese in the Mac and cheese? The service was great but yuck!

The ambiance and view is amazing. The service was awful from not having anyone at the table or checking in for 20 minutes at a time. Busser taking forks when we weren’t done with food. Also, not clearing the table before the next course came. Clearing plates before everyone was done with that course. A high end hotel like this should have stellar service.

Go for the views. Spectacular!!

This was by far the standout meal/dining experience of our trip to Hawaii (including our time in Oahu). The view over the water is breathtaking and the future is delicious. We especially enjoyed the fresh caught ahi tuna and mahi mahi. If you're staying in the Princeville area, definitely add this spot to your list, you won't regret it!

Our waitress, Jeanette, was inattentive the whole time. We did not feel welcomed and she provided horrible service. We watched her serve and tend to other tables. What a terrible experience! Especially upset with the service given the price of the meals! She had another waitress tend to my table the whole time. Our steak was dry and you can still taste the flour in the mac and cheese. Will never return and will not recommended to anyone.
